too bitter, too analytical and too detached. I felt as if I were reading henry James for the 20th century. having said that it provided a fascinating contemporary view of the mid-century period I love so much: the final chapter was almost like reading what is going through Donald Draper's wife's mind when she is sent for psychiatric counselling. also interesting to read about american being socialist and communist before (the other) McCarthy ie quite openly, and with a great deal of intellectually sincere intentions, and to compare them with Doris Lessing's depiction of British Communists (of the same period?) in Golden Notebook. From the same school of writing as that book too. possibly because of the style, possibly because of the feeling that I was missing out too often on cultural subtleties I simply don't get or because the McCarthy deliberately intended her readers to struggle with engaging with the protaganist I just couldn't get emotionally excited about it.

This was a very interesting book, and one I'll definitely have to read again. It took a good two months, because of school, so I'd like to read it in a week or so, without all the breaks. Some of it was very confusing; it changes so much from chapter to chapter that I would find myself loving it after one chapter, and not wanting to go on when I started the next. It seemed a little disconnected at times, but overall I think it works all right.

I didn't like the last chapter that much - a psychoanalytical look at Margaret Sargent's life, with a lot of obvious connections to Mary McCarthy's own childhood that hadn't been so apparent throughout the rest of the book. ( )

If you like clever conversation, thoroughly laced with the left-wing politics of the late 30s, this is the book for you. It’s a series of interconnected short stories, set at various points in the life of Margaret Sargent. She’s one of the most self-aware people you’ll ever meet. She shares not just her thoughts, but her judgments of her thoughts, and the reasons behind these judgments.

At the same time, McCarthy only occasionally over-writes. The point of view shifts, and often we see her through the eyes of her lovers, or in glancing and circumstantial ways. Everyone in this book is subject to the same detailed, scrupulous understanding, and it’s always interesting. Everything also happens in a very acutely noted social context. In some of the stories, the intellectual climate of the times pays as vivid a part as any other character.

As I was reading this book I kept referring to this summary on the back page. The fact that I was reading a novel about someone named Margaret Sargent was not something I could infer from the text. It seemed to me that I was reading a collection of disparate short stories, and yes, there was a young female wandering through each of these stories, but it wasn't at all clear that it was the same young female each time. It was as though her story was obscured by the dark, and the author randomly flicked on the light and illuminated some part of it, and this part may span a single evening, a few days or a number of years. But random is the operative word here; there was only the vaguest sense of a sequence, an ordering that could only be understood retrospectively, and no real narrative. Continued ( )

She could not bear to hurt her husband. She impressed this on the Young Man, on her confidantes, and finally on her husband himself. ... That the deception was accompanied by feelings of guilt, by sharp and genuine revulsions, only complicated and deepened its delights, by abrading the sensibilities, and by imposing a sense of outlawry and consequent mutual dependence upon the lovers. But what this interlude of deception gave her, above all, she recognized, was an opportunity, unparalleled in her experience, for exercising feelings of superiority over others. For her husband she had, she believed, only sympathy and compunction. ... It was as if by the mere act of betraying her husband, she had adequately bested him; it was superogatory for her to gloat, and, if she gloated at all, it was over her fine restraint in not gloating, over the integrity of her moral sense, which allowed her to preserve even while engaged in sinfulness the acute realization of sin and shame.
